      What it might sound like if Eminem had tinnitus??? :cool:

      "No one can hear it we fear that they think we are crazy or lazy or just cannot manage the issue I wish you could hear this for even a minute you’d witness the noise every second and hour the shower a respite that drowns out the sound going round and around but the instant it stops it’s just back to the pops and the clicks and the tones that won’t leave us alone this outrageously noisy frustration we deal with a hum and a whoosh and a squeal it’s unreal and absurd that they can’t find a cure but we’re sure there’s a way so we pray that the best that we have work steadfast in their labs so some day a pill not placebo will show that they found the right combo that just…turns...it...off."​

      @Michael910411 That was pretty good. Eminem video of that song would be him in a padded room.

      That lyric describes T vividly and only those who have it can write it out so vividly. So ya, add Eminem to the list of celebrities with T. He's got it.

      It would have been better had you written the text in the form of a column of lines that rhyme, with the words separated in syllables, rap/Eminem style. I noticed the rhyme in the text only after the above members did.

      How about asking Eminem to do it himself?
      Send him a letter?
      That would be fantastic to the power of two, to hear this on the radio recorded by him. That would be some real "awareness" project, IMO.

      Then again, as RaZaH said somewhere, that the people in the music industry tend to keep as a secret the fact that T is their kryptonite ...
      Worth a shot, I would say.
      Either he accepts, or not. No big deal.

      Should one of us tried to emulate Eminem, some legal issues could appear, and we could not invoke that it was just a parody, cause this is not some joke.

      Does Eminem actually have tinnitus?. Good luck on actually trying to contact him though.

      What great replies! Sounds like there are some real artists among us, great suggestions on the the structure, I hadn't thought through any of that. I have no idea if he actually has it, I just hear his voice/style in my head when I read it so that's why I mentioned him. I can't even imagine the horror of an artist dealing with this...like a piano player getting arthritis.

      Love it.

      Now we just have to get past his entourage and give him the lyrics...

      It would be pretty cool if we have someone that can mimic his style and we make a video. I can do the music track for it, all we need is a rapper and the video now.

      Will.i.am is way better choice than Eminem, IMO. He is a philanthropist (!!!!!!!!), music producer, composer of rap music, (so he does not need to mimic Eminem in order to come up with a good rap song, avoiding this way some potential problems) and .......he has....tinnitus, so he has this problem at heart. So he could, basically, do ....everything.

      I can’t be still. Work calms me down,” Will, 35, says of the maddening noise in his ears, a malady that is especially cruel to a producer whose ability to mix and blend sounds is crucial to his career.

      “I can’t be quiet, as that’s when I notice the ringing in my ears,” he describes. “There’s always a beep there every day, all day. Like now. I don’t know exactly how long I’ve had this, but it’s gradually got worse.”

      Lyrics can be improved, the golden idea is the making a rap/hip-hop song about T, this problem of people that DOES NOT GET THE ATTENTION IT SHOULD!. The word "TINNITUS" would be good to be introduced and heard clearly, or maybe, better, "RINGING IN THE EARS", so people who hear the lyrics do not confuse the "sound/noise" with some obsessing painful memories of a noise heard once that keep coming back. Many people know about "ringing in the ears", so the message has a better chance to be understood exactly what it is about.

      "I was born in '72... back then what rapping meant, basically, was you trying to convey something—you're trying to convince somebody. That's what rapping is, it's in the way you talk."[17]

      That's amazing Dana, no misinterpreting "that’s when I notice the ringing in my ears". Since it's not something that comes up in normal conversation, I always wonder how many other people in the room have this same problem, because I know statistically there have to be some.

      I was born in '68 so I think our experience with rap is the same, but I don't know how many PSAs I remember hearing. It would be ironic if they did talk about it though, as their demographic is likely to be very likely to play their music too loud in the first place, potentially leading this ridiculous condition.
